Give Yourself a Grammy Every Day — You Deserve It


Give yourself a Grammy and celebrate YOU.

What do I mean when I suggest that you give yourself a Grammy?

Here in the United States, we just celebrated the annual Grammy Awards, recognizing excellence in the music and recording industry.

And what I want to emphasize today is this: While you might not be Beyoncé, you can give yourself a Grammy each and every day.

It’s within your power, and when you validate yourself, you give yourself a huge boost. The energy that it brings you affects your perspective and productivity — and enriches your experience of time.

Give yourself a Grammy…

Finding time to validate yourself and your efforts is one of the best gifts you can give yourself.  It doesn’t have to just be during awards season.  Your own positive regard, all year long, gives you a solid foundation for exploring your talents, taking risks, and living your moments to their fullest.

I bet you often acknowledge and validate the accomplishments of your friends, co-workers, and children. But do you think to give the same positive strokes to yourself?

Probably not.

Step back and think about it, though.  You know how powerful The Attitude of Gratitude is. If you’ve practiced it, you know how it can quite literally change how you perceive and respond to things.

So how about giving yourself a pat on the back, EVERY day, for something.

As with gratitude, once you begin to look at yourself with love and appreciation, you will not be lacking for things to feel good about.

  • Maybe it was taking that walk or run you had been meaning to get to all week. 
  • Or maybe you connected with a friend you hadn’t seen in awhile, or paid some bills, or cleaned out your in-box.
  • Perhaps you sat quietly, or played a game of Hearts with your daughter. 
  • Or maybe you took time for yourself and went to a movie.

In many ways, the details don’t matter.

It’s focusing on and naming something about YOU that you feel good about each day that’s key.  Not only will that have a profound impact on your energy, it will also help you open your heart wide to the whole of you.  Your inner critic will hold less sway in your life, and you will be less afraid to look with clear eyes at your choices and values.

So, try setting aside time to validate yourself at the start or end of your day.  You could write your validation(s) down. Then you’ll have them to look back on as the days and weeks progress.

How will you make time to get started and give yourself a Grammy today?

Here’s more help…

We all have voices that chatter at us throughout the day. And we all have choices about which voices we listen to.

Unfortunately, the Inner Critic is a negative, debilitating and constant presence each of our lives. It may vary in size, but it’s a presence we all must contend with. And it’s not just the words. It’s the judgmental tone, the rolling eyes, and the scolding wag of the index finger. Beyond sapping your energy and confidence, your Inner Critic robs you of time and profoundly distorts how you see others and how you feel about yourself. So, what can you do?
